2021 City Of Auckland Cup Tips


City Of Auckland Cup 2021 Best Bet - Savy Yong Blonk (Tipped at $7)

Last year's runner-up looks to be trekking along nicely to be prominent once again in the Auckland Cup.

She was last seen on December 12 when finishing second to Ocean Billy at Cambridge, where she was extremely strong to the line over 2400m.

Although well beaten last year, the winner, Platinum Invador made his way over to Australia and was placed behind Chapada at Group Two level, so she was beaten by a good one.

This looks her race to lose this year, ready to peak over the mile and a half at her third run for the campaign.

City Of Auckland Cup 2021 Next Best Bet - In A Twinkling

Last start he was seen finishing third in the Zabeel Classic at Group One level, which was over a trip of 2000m.

He now makes the step up to the 2400m where he looks well suited on the one week back-up.

Two starts back he won the Counties Cup, defeating our on top selection, so this horse has the right form lines to prove hard to beat once again in this race.

Although not at his best around Ellerslie, he is a strong gelding who looks the logical danger to the favourite.

City Of Auckland Cup 2021 Roughie - Platinum Invador

If he is anywhere near back to his best, he could win this race once again as he did last year.

He was competitve without winning in Victoria, but did dissapoint last start at Manawatu in the Cup, back to New Zealand.

He now gets back to Ellerslie, the scene and race of his last win, so I am expecting him to find some form.

Such a dominant winner last year, it is hard to ignore the double figures on offer.
